McCain opposes equal pay bill in Senate

The Arizona senator said he was familiar with the disparity but that there are better ways to help women find better paying jobs.

"They need more education and training... endquote


Thanks, John, but I don't need more edumication to know that with a statistical average of women getting paid 77 cents to every man's dollar (for equal work) that I'm being screwed.

Yer in Canada now. Where they don't mind being screwed if they're kissed first.

yet more evidence that the man is simply too OLD to be an effective President.

You just need to look at his wife to know what he thinks of women. They should look good and nod at everything their husbands say.

Argh! And my husband thinks McCain is smart. Oh, he's smart alright! He would, however vote Democrat if he ever got organized enough to do the absentee thing. Do you? And who is it for you, Hillary or Obama? Too personal? eep. I'm a little partial to Obama. Don't quite trust Hillary. I do, however, trust McCain to be true to what you just revealed of him.

What an ass. It's not just about women getting lesser jobs and needing help to get into higher-level positions, it's about the fact that when they do, they are STILL getting less! Easy for him to talk about how women just need to get more educated to get more pay - he's got plenty. Not that it's made him any smarter...

Agreed.

I've read about this and I can't for the life of my see how he can defend this policy.

I simply do not understand the mind of the right wing.
